Pictures at an Exhibition (hmv Exclusive) The 1921 Centenary Edition White Vinyl
This year marks a full century since the first hmv store opened its doors at 363 Oxford Street in London, and on July 24 we'll be celebrating our 100th birthday in style with a brand new and exclusive range of limited edition vinyl just for you...
As part of our birthday celebrations we're pleased to announce the new 1921 Centenary Edition range, for which we have carefully curated a selection of the finest albums and soundtracks from the last 100 years and had them specially pressed onto some beautiful coloured vinyl - all of which will be available exclusively in hmv stores on Saturday November 13th and from store.hmv.com at 4pm the same day. As ever, our exclusives will be available on a first come, first served basis... and when they're gone, they're gone!
Prog rock supergroup Emerson, Lake & Palmer, formed by three former members of The Nice, Asia and King Crimson, were nothing if not ambitious. When their first live album arrived in 1971 it did not, as fans might’ve expected, include any of the songs from their 1970 debut or its follow-up, but instead featured the band’s synth-laden, heavy rocking rendition of a suite originally written by Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky, performed and recorded at Newcastle’s City Hall.
Possibly one of the most head-spinning albums of its era, Pictures at an Exhibition returns to stores in November as part of our 1921 Centenary Edition range in the form of a new limited edition pressing on white vinyl, with 1500 copies up for grabs.
